Portrait of Jarrod Guppy

Unravelling the genetic architecture of black tiger prawn (Penaeus monodon) production traits through development and utilisation of novel genomic resources

Jarrod Guppy has been involved in aquaculture research for the past 5 years, working extensively with industry partners, having developed technical expertise in aquatic animal husbandry and breeding, juvenile production and applied genetic techniques. Jarrod recently completed his BSc Adv (Hons) awarded with academic commendation, investigating the use of gene silencing in barramundi to study complex process involved in protandrous sex inversion.
Jarrod Guppy’s research interests encompass aquatic animal genetics and genomics, advanced selective breeding, sexual development and manipulation, targeted gene silencing and applied advanced reproductive techniques for tropical aquaculture species.
